Lebanese Parliament Speaker Described Presidential Election Sessions As A Pointless Play


Parliament Speaker Nabih Berri has called for national dialogue to find a successor to President Michel Aoun, describing the unsuccessful parliamentary sessions to elect a new president as a pointless “play.”

Berri told Asharq al-Awsat that he has started gathering opinions from the political forces about holding a national dialogue after Aoun’s term ends, as he considered that “there is no point in calling for more sessions as long as there is no consensus.”

Berri also revealed his intentions to call for dialogue as soon as he senses a positive response from the parties.

“Without a consensus, we will remain trapped in a whirlpool,” Berri said.
